Students with a more focused interest in either China or Japan and those planning to go on to a doctoral program should consider the M.A. programs in Chinese or Japanese studies.
Ideally, students applying for the East Asian Studies – Accelerated Master’s Program from University of Arizona will have the following:
- three years of either Chinese or Japanese language study (or have equivalent language ability)
- adequate English ability to pursue a master’s degree.
Prospective students with less than three years of language study are encouraged to contact the Admissions Committee to discuss their situation. With departmental approval, students with a limited number of deficiencies may be admitted to the program. These students will need to make up any deficiencies. Graduate credit will not be given for any work completed to satisfy deficiencies.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
